Welcome to the YMCA of Greater Des Moines Electronic Registration platform for our upcoming swim season! We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration. The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you to easily declare your intent to participate in swim meets, sign-up for volunteer jobs, see your swimmers's event time histories, maintain your own contact information and more.

We look forward to having you join the YMCA of Greater Des Moines and are excited for another great season!

Welcome to the DSMY Online Registration System

New Members (members that did not swim/register with the DSMY Marlins in previous seasons.)

1. All swimmers new to the team need to attend a Tryout/Evaluation session at the practice site where they would like to train and be assigned a practice training group.  Click on the Tryout button for your specific practice site to have your swimmer evaluated.

2. If registration is open (see dates listed above), and your swimmer has attended a tryout session and has been assigned a training group, click on the Green Continue button below and proceed through the process. 

3.  As a new Member, you may choose to become a member of USA Swimming and participate in USA Swimming meets. (This is optional and may be added at a later time.) Click this link to review the options you will see at the checkout.  If you are transferring from another USA Swimming club, please provide your USA Swimming ID during the registration process and DSMY will assist you in with the transfer paperwork.  The optional USA Swimming registration fees are offered at the final checkout.  Select ONLY 1, if any.

4.  Select swimmer's appropriate practice location and group:​

  • Full Season start date 9-03-19 through 02-28-20 for Ankeny, Indianola, Walnut Creek, Waukee, Wellmark
  • Full Season start date 11-01-19 through 02-28-20 for South Suburban
  • All swimmers MUST be registered by November 1 to participate in the 2019 Fall/Winter YMCA season. (As stated in the Iowa YMCA competitive rules.)
  • Swimmers competing past February 28 will be invoiced accordingly for their training time. For example, those competing at Y State will be invoiced for one week, those competing at Y Regionals will be invoiced three weeks and those competing at Y Nationals the full month of March.

5.  Once the registration is completed, you will be notified of your member status and a secure password will be forwarded to you to allow access to the DSMY Swim Team website.  New members will only be accepted if there is room in their respective group.

6.  Upon accessing the DSMY Swim Team website, please review your account information and make any updates/additions/corrections as needed.

7.  Swimmers will not be allowed to swim in meets if their account and YMCA membership is not current.

8. By registering for the DSMY Marlins swim team, you are committing your swimmer for the entire fall/winter 2019-20 season ending 02-28-20. We do not offer refunds, partial credits or discounts for vacations, missed practices or leaving before the season has ended. However, we do provide monthly payment options. Your payment at the time of registration is your swimmer's first month of team dues (if not paying for the season in full).

9. All families are expected to provide 15 service hours during our hosted DSMY meets located at Indianola, Waukee and Wellmark. Families who are dual registered with USA Swimming are expected to provide 30 service hours through a combination of YMCA and USA Swimming DSMY hosted meets.
